But now researchers at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a self-cleaning coating made up of nanoparticles that removes stains from cashmere by exposing the garment to light. ..

  • Why Do Some Old Programming Languages Never Die?

    Lauren Orsini
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    Many of today’s most well-known programming languages are old enough to vote. PHP is 20. Python is 23. HTML is 21. Ruby and JavaScript are 19. C is a whopping 42 years old. Nobody could have predicted this. Not even computer scientist Brian Kernighan, co-author of the very first book on C, which is still being printed today. (The language itself was the work of Kernighan's co-author Dennis Ritchie, who passed away in 2011.)“I dimly recall a conversation early on with the editors, telling them that we’d sell something like 5,000 copies of the book,” Kernighan told me in a recent…

  • AREND Project aims to ward off poachers with unmanned aerial vehicles

    2 Sep 2014 | 2:21 am
    Like many a technology before it, the aerial drone is finding applications far beyond military circles, from burrito delivery to surveying broken bridges. One emerging area with huge potential is wildlife conservation, with drones delivering the ability to patrol and detect illegal poachers from the air. AREND (Aircraft for Rhino and Environmental Defense) is an international team of students currently developing an unmanned aerial system with the ultimate objective of combating poaching in Africa's national parks. ..

    Birds that stray into the paths of aircraft, eat crops, or spread disease from foraging in large numbers at landfills are, at best, a nuisance and, at worst, downright dangerous. Over the years people have tried everything from scaring them away with loud noises to trapping them – all with varying results.

    Less than one year ago, 14-year-old Taj Pabari was like any other kid, toiling away on a 3D printer at school (ok, maybe not quite like any other kid). An assignment required the class to sandwich two pieces of plastic together, but where some students simply saw air, Pabari envisioned the makings of a new kind of educational toy. Fast-forward some 10 months and he finds himself shortlisted for a Young Innovator of the Year award and pitching his product to potential investors. So what is it that has catapulted Pabari from the classroom to rubbing shoulders with industry leaders in the space…

We talk about it often. I keep running it. Now, what did they do right? They did fix their battery issues. It doesn’t put a major strain on my battery anymore. It does have some users, it’s just that the user count isn’t going up very fast and the UTILITY…

These devices can support hundreds of other wireless devices, each with sensors, lights, or controllers for things on us or around us. This has deep implications for our contextual future (I’m writing a book, titled “Age of Context”). These new devices will cost less than $10 (wholesale) and run on a small…

Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy.

Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…

    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

For you Cubism fans out there, it was indeed a Picasso (“Boy with a Pipe”).

Picasso is represented most on the list, with painting sales totaling over $365 million.

  • Smart Connected Devices: A New Forecast

    Bob O'Donnell
    2 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    As an analyst, one of the first things I was ever asked to do was put together a forecast. In fact, a key part of an analyst’s job is to dive deeply into a market, learn as much as you can about what the current market size is, understand where it’s going, and use all the insight you can to make predictions about where it’s headed. While there are some mathematical tricks and a certain amount of scientific rigor that can be applied to the process, it’s fundamentally more of a creative, artistic effort. At the end of the day, you have to trust your gut and intuition about where you…
  • Apple Claim Chowder: Killers

    John Kirk
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:18 am
    With an Apple Event fast approaching, I’m reviewing critiques of past Apple Events to see how accurate they were. Turns out, not very. Critique is needed and welcome. Repeated errors? Not so much. Killers There is a long, sordid history of products being introduced as iPod, iPhone, and iPad Killers. You know the deal. Product “X” is introduced and it will be an Apple Killer because hypothetical products of the future are always superior to Apple products of today, yada, yada, yada. The problem with this theory is that repeated experience has shown that it just ain’t…

Oh, and next week there’s — OMG! — a major Apple event, not at Moscone Center in San Francisco but at Flint Center in Cupertino, the very same location where the original Mac was introduced and where the phoenix-like (i)Mac was introduced, and this can only mean… A new Mac?

    PHOENIX — A 9-year-old girl who accidentally killed a shooting range instructor with an Uzi in northern Arizona said immediately after the shooting that she felt the gun was too much for her and had hurt her shoulder, according to police reports released on Tuesday. Her family members were focused on the girl because they thought she was injured by the gun's recoil and didn't immediately realize instructor Charles Vacca had been shot until one of his colleagues ran over.

    A very stupid story broke out over the weekend and got some buzz after some people read way too much into some legal maneuvering. As you may recall, back in April a court ruled that Microsoft had to hand over email data stored in Ireland based on a warrant issued in the US under the (incredibly outdated) Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). Microsoft, quite reasonably, fought back, pointing out that a warrant only applies within the US and not to foreign countries. The DOJ (and the original judge) claimed that an ECPA warrant isn't really like a warrant at all, but rather a "hybrid…

His theory was that this armor makes it easier for people to commit crimes and thus harder for the police to shoot them down.

    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

If you go to a park and have cash on hand, pay it. They need the revenue. I didn’t have it so I parked up across the street. More on this in a bit. If you’re more of a…

    While the Nexus 7 and its 16:10 aspect ratio is great for content consumption, it's not ideal for productivity in landscape mode. Perhaps that's why Google may make the Nexus 9 with a 4:3 aspect and an optional keyboard folio case.

    A leading celebrity lawyer has advised his clients not to use smartphones and the iCloud after intimate photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and female entertainers and models were posted online following an apparent mass hacking.

But thanks to Digitsole's advancements in the field of insole functionality, I might be changing my tune in the near future.

The API feeds raw infrared imagery straight from Leap's sensors to the controller on the headset, giving users a real time view of the environment. The API expands the tracking space to any direction the user is facing. Its field of view exceeds that of existing VR displays so users can track their hands before they come into their field of vision.

    A very interesting book just hit the market. Written by Martine Rothblatt -- apparently she is America's top paid female CEO -- its title is Virtually Human: The Promise -- and the Peril -- of Digital Immortality. The subject is digital clones, and Rothblatt goes into depth about what they are, when they are coming, and the likelihood they eventually will have equal human rights. The premise is fascinating, and I now can foresee a future when we won't be able to survive successfully without one -- and that future is coming damned fast.

    Peach OSI is a new Linux distro that stands apart from the crowd. Its first stable version was just released in June -- yet it displays more performance traits and sophistication than many Linux distros that have been searching for an audience for years. In the crowded Linux distro field, it is very rare to find a newcomer that is not like any of the others. It is also rare to see a first stable release offer the kind of smooth performance and expansive feature set as Peach OSI. Peach OSI is a great starting point for Linux newcomers.

Among the 17 million rumors regarding the next iPhone is that it will feature such a display -- the camera and Touch ID components already feature sapphire. Until Apple reveals the truth about its next smartphone, other manufacturers, like Huawei, are jostling for sapphire-embossed market share. The new version of the Ascend P7 will give Huawei the first sapphire-screen smartphone, though it'll be more expensive than previous iterations.

The NFC tech will enable mobile payments, Wired reported, citing sources "familiar with the matter." Wow. If this is true, it could be the catalyst that propels mobile payments into the mainstream. Right now, NFC features are commonly included on Android and Windows smartphones, but its usage is nowhere near common.

The resulting bad press could damage your brand.

The series launched well before the privacy debates that are now the norm. But series creator Aaron Sorkin was way ahead of his time all those years ago when he focused on Internet privacy in the season one episode “The Short List.” In the episode, Bartlet has nominated a man for the Supreme Court whose writings suggest a lack of regard for Americans’ right to privacy. During a heated Oval Office discussion, presidential advisor Sam…

So what are they?

    With the much-discussed Galaxy Alpha just around the corner, we take another look at Samsung’s current top dog, the S5, to see if it’s still a worthy contender half a year on. Is this the best Galaxy in the universe, or will the Alpha leave it feeling like a beta release? With thanks to Vodafone for the handset.  The handset 7/10 The Galaxy S5 has received all kinds of criticism for its polycarbonate back panel, beset with ‘dimples’ if you’re feeling generous, or ‘pockmarks’ if you’re not. It’s been accused of looking like a plaster, a cigarette package, even the vinyl…
  • Action films make us eat more, says study

    If you want to bulk up for your next half marathon, you should probably start streaming an action-packed movie with your dinner. If, on the other hand, you want to eat more mindfully, you’d be better off switching on something more sedate. Researchers have discovered that a Hollywood action film is more likely than an interview programme to make us stuff our faces. In a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers assigned 94 students (57 of them women) one of three different clips: either 20 minutes of ScarJo thriller The Island, the same clip from…
  • A Florida university’s opened the first ebook-only library

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:07 am
    Florida Polytechnic University has just opened to students, and has unveiled an 11,000 square-foot library that cost £36 million to build – but doesn’t contain a single book. Well, that’s not quite true: it has books, they’re just not visible; they’re in the cloud. Students can read paper textbooks if they want to, thanks to inter-library loans, but they’re encouraged to fire up their Kindle, Nook, or iPad instead, as the university apparently wants them to be adept at accessing and working with information digitally. This makes sense, given that it’s a…

    2 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    Epson has announced that it is getting into health gadgets, with the launch of “Pulsense” and “Runsense” wristbands. Who knew that Epson doesn’t just make printers? Pulsense comes in two models: the PS-100 is similar to the Fitbit Flex, and will silently log data with only an LED light for display. The PS-500 meanwhile offers more detailed feedback on a screen – showing you your step-count, calories burnt or pulse in real time. Yes – that’s right, pulse. The new bands have a built in optical heart rate sensor. This is similar technology to the…
  • Next Nexus to have a Microsoft Surface-style keyboard?

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:14 am
    Google is planning a keyboard built into a cover for its next tablet – rumoured to be the high-end 9″ Nexus 9, according to reports. Android Police has the scoop on the new keyboard/cover, which will fold up in a number of different configurations so you can position the tablet how you like it, in addition to the keyboard. Just like Apple’s keyboard, it’ll use magnets to lock parts into position. Intriguingly, the case itself has a built in battery and can be charged up – suggesting that it will be powered separately to the main Nexus device. It has also been…
  • Sonos update enables the removal of the wifi “Bridge”

    James O'Malley
    2 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Sonos has today started rolling out a software update to its devices that will let you users remove the wifi bridge from their home audio setup. Crucially, this also means that future customers will be able to buy the wireless sound system without the added hardware expense. Previously to make a Sonos system talk to your home network, you needed a “Bridge” – a little white box that plugs into your router and talks to the wireless speakers. With the 5.1 software update, Sonos engineers appear to have knocked it out of the equation, instead relying on your existing wifi…
  • Now you can get a step tracker… for your feet

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    A new piece of wearable technology has been announced that for the first time connects, umm, the soles of your feet to the internet. DigitSole has all of the benefits of a step tracker like Fitbit, with all of the bonus weirdness of having to add sensors into your shoes. The bluetooth insoles talk to your phone, and will track your step count, figure out changes in altitude, estimate calories burnt and will even warm your feet up. Yes, warm you feet up: One of the key selling points of the device (devices? It comes as a pair…) is that by using the smartphone app you can use the soles to…

    When Microsoft removed Kinect from the lower-end Xbox One bundle (making the promise of what Kinect would be go up in smoke,) it also announced that it would make the Kinect sensor for Xbox One available as a standalone purchase for anyone who might want to add it to their console after purchasing one without it, but never announced a date. Now we know that the Kinect for Xbox One will be available in stores in October, and will cost $150. It makes sense that Microsoft would offer Kinect separately, but the extra $50 that it's taking on to the price may made it a dud out of the gate,…

    As we close out Device Theft Awareness Month, we wanted to talk about laptop security. We've already covered the device theft statistics, alongside a bunch of ways to protect yourself from smartphone theft. Some may argue that notebooks are even more of a danger to lose than a smartphone, due to the vast amount of personal data stored on them that can be lost or fall into the wrong hands, as well as the cost of replacement. Let's talk about some of the ways to protect both your investment and your data. 1. Password protect your computer. Regardless of whether you use a PC, Mac, or…

    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

    3 Jun 2014 | 11:57 pm
    Monday’s WWDC Keynote was easily the largest set of changes made to Apple’s platforms since iOS 2 was announced in 2008. The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success. Apple announced further updates to their cloud service where you can save all of the photos and videos you take,…

    Tesla plans to build a massive new lithium ion factory that would double world production volume. Doing so could dramatically change the car industry: When Tesla first began working on its Model S saloon barely five years ago, lithium-ion batteries were priced at about $1,000 a kilowatt-hour (kWh). Manufacturers are notoriously secretive about pricing details, but industry insiders hint that prices have now slipped to anywhere from $400 to $750 a kWh. Even so, that means the 85 kWh pack in a Model S costs Tesla between $34,000 and $63,750. A study by the Boston Consulting Group projected that…

    There's an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal dicussing LG's OLED TV push. According to the WSJ, LG is currently selling more OLED TVs in a month than it did in all of 2013. This is great, of course, but LG probably only sold a few thousand (some estimate around 3,000) OLED TVs in 2013, so monthly volume is still very low.While nobody expected the OLED TV market to take off in 2014, this will hopefully change in 2015.

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

    21 Aug 2014 | 10:35 am
    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…

    I was wondering if it’s possible to set up webcam to monitor my house while I’m out. What’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of options on how to do this. My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up. Here’s a photo of the little…
  • What is Bitcoin?

    Owen Cutajar
    25 Nov 2013 | 4:09 pm
    I keep seeing the word Bitcoin come up in the media and on website. What is this Bitcoin thing all about? Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    I’m putting together a timesheet in Excel and wanted to multiply my hours by an hourly rate. Ive been messing around for hours and reading up in the help but there’s nothing that suggests how this can be done. What’s the best way to do this? It turns out to be much easier than you think. It’s a great little technique that can be used whether you’re calculating what it costs to sit in McDonalds all day, or playing with pignose amplifiers at guitar center. Here’s what you need to do: First of all, make sure your hours are formatted in a time format. This…
  • How can I host my server farm?

    Owen Cutajar
    4 Sep 2013 | 2:50 pm
    I’ve been playing with Virtual Machines for some time now, and after realising I can host a number a machines on one server I’ve come up with a plan to put all my company’s servers on one box. The tower I bought for my plan isn’t cutting it though, what do you recommend? Putting all your servers on one box is a great plan. It’s definitely more efficient than lots of small servers, both in terms of power and space. However, trying to fit them all on a tower or desktop isn’t the way forward. You need a proper server, located in a proper data centre to ensure…

  • The Pygmalion Effect: You Control Your Employees’ Potential 

    Kira M. Newman
    2 Sep 2014 | 10:30 am
    In an (in)famous study of elementary school students, researchers tested their intelligence and reported to teachers which ones had performed exceptionally well. But their findings came with a warning: don’t treat these students differently, and don’t tell anyone about the results. The teachers were even observed to make sure they didn’t spend extra time with the superstars. By the end of the year, the students were still performing exceptionally well – but there was a catch. Their test scores from before had been merely average. The experimenters had lied to the teachers, but…

    Kanika Sharma
    2 Sep 2014 | 4:30 am
    Running a startup is fraught with challenges. Nurturing an idea into a product or service, impressing investors to invest in a startup, identifying the target audience, convincing people about its goods and services, collaborating with team members, and working within strict deadlines are some of the things that distract startup founders from daily productivity. Being understaffed, having tight budgets, and needing to perform too many tasks can make going tough for them. But they need not worry as they can get the better of their problems and concerns through some enterprising productivity…

    So you want to join a business incubator?  Here are 5 key strategies to help you compare options. 1. Stake it to make it  If the incubator doesn’t have a stake in the companies, they are just selling real estate.  That’s a fine model, and it is innovative as a real estate strategy- just not all that innovative as an incubator. Innovative business incubators have a stake in the companies they incubate.   They live or die, in the long term, based on their incubated companies’ successes.  The stake can come in equity, royalty debt, convertible debt, or some combination. Usually…

    The Internet of Things has been picking up a lot of steam, and there are more connected home devices available now than ever before. But having many different manufacturers all providing individual solutions makes for a very fragmented experience—not entirely inline with the “connected” ideal. But there are two major players who may provide the solution. The first is Apple, a behemoth and a market leader. Where Apple goes, others will follow, and back at WWDC in June Apple announced HomeKit, a framework for securely connecting and controlling various gadgets. The other player is…

    ASUS has released the ROG Gladius gaming mouse, which doesn't have the best optical sensor we've ever seen, but is still pretty good at 6,400 dpi. In fact, the DPI is high enough to demand on-the-fly resolution / sensitivity adjustment, since the settings you use in a strategy game might not be the best for a fist-person shooter where you need to keep the crosshair really stable. Thus, one of the six buttons is used for resolution adjustment alone, which means that you have five left for the... (read more)

  • Is This Useless Piece of Plastic Taking the Place of Real Smartphones?

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:38 am
    What began as satire has turned into an odd and somewhat concerning demand for the noPhone, a technology-free alternative to a real mobile device, which basically means a piece of plastic that acts as a placeholder for people addicted to their phones. The site (jokingly) boasts that the noPhone acts "as a surrogate to any smart mobile device, enabling you to always have a rectangle of smooth, cold plastic to clutch without forgoing any potential engagement with your direct environment." The pluses of the noPhone are really quite numerous. It's waterproof, shatter proof, and battery free, and…

    2 Sep 2014 | 7:19 am
    There’s no question that water is important. You drink, you prosper. You don’t, you die. Simple equation.

      Beefing up your free Dropbox account with extra space isn’t hard if you know what to look for, but the company just smartly streamlined its Pro plans in case you need even more cloud action. Kiss those tricky tiered plans goodbye: all that’s left now is a 1TB option that’ll set you back $9.99 a month (or $99 a year). Not a bad deal considering that’s how much you would’ve paid Dropbox monthly for 100GB of cloud storage just a few days ago, and the company is sweetening the pot with some neat new sharing and security features too.

  • iPhone 6 – Speculation

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:28 am
    The presumptive name for Apple’s next-generation iPhone is iPhone 6. Yes, it will be the 8th generation phone in Apple’s product lineup, internally referred to as iPhone7,1, but don’t let those numbers distract you. Apple can call any phone it releases by any marketing name it wants and the next number after 5/5s is 6. So, iPhone 6. iPhone 6 release date speculation If Apple holds to the same pattern as the last two years, the iPhone 6 will be announced on or around September 9, 2014, with a release date of September 19, 2014. That said, Apple doesn’t always hold to…

    These are decidedly fast-paced times that we are living in, with the developments in digital technology gathering pace at an unstoppable rate, and sometimes these developments do not take the predictable path. When Apple made the decision to embrace HTML 5, rather than Adobe Flash as a platform for its devices, this was seen as (to put it kindly) an eccentric move – but a few years down the line and no-one is talking about it in those terms, as HTML 5 has trounced Flash in the subsequent battle. In fact, one of the major reasons why HTML 5 has risen to prominence so rapidly in the period…

It's believed that the images were stolen by exploiting a glitch in Apple's Find My iPhone service for people looking to track or shut down their lost devices. Normally, an iPhone user's account would be locked out after a few failed password attempts, but the glitch allowed a remote hacker to run through multiple passwords until finding the one that unlocked the account.

    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order.

In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise.

    This was mentioned briefly in our recent post about EasyDNS changing how it deals with online pharmacies, but it's still dealing with bizarre requests from the City of London Police. As we've been detailing, the City of London Police seem to think that (1) their job is to protect the business model of the legacy entertainment industry and (2) that they can do this globally, despite actually just representing one-square mile and (3) that they can do this entirely based on their own say so, rather than any actual court ruling.

While the President and the Minister of Communications have stressed that higher-speed connections (and less censorship) are useful to Iran's citizens, many others in the government feel that increasing speeds means giving up lots and lots of control.

    Mike Masnick
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:54 am
    A very stupid story broke out over the weekend and got some buzz after some people read way too much into some legal maneuvering. As you may recall, back in April a court ruled that Microsoft had to hand over email data stored in Ireland based on a warrant issued in the US under the (incredibly outdated) Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). Microsoft, quite reasonably, fought back, pointing out that a warrant only applies within the US and not to foreign countries. The DOJ (and the original judge) claimed that an ECPA warrant isn't really like a warrant at all, but rather a "hybrid…

Mike Honda that would make merely possessing or buying "body armor" a crime that could result in 10 years in jail. His theory was that this armor makes it easier for people to commit crimes and thus harder for the police to shoot them down. But That One Guy got the most insightful comment of the week by pointing out how ridiculous that logic is: So if his justification for this is 'armored assailants', one…

    SkinYoga is the brainchild of sister-trio: Radhika, Jagriti and Deepika. They were born in West Bengal in India and grew up in a 20-acre farm in Gujarat where they grew their own vegetables and milked the cows for their daily dairy. Later, they moved to other countries in order to pursue their respective college degrees. The transition from farm life to the concrete city life inspired them to create SkinYoga and to share with the world the importance of leading a yogic more

  • Mourning Beard

    C.K. Sample III
    13 Aug 2014 | 9:36 am
    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    I’ve just been really, really, incredibly busy. I see other people giving up on blogging. Like Scoble today, who is most likely doing it for a stunt, like he’s done before with Google+ and Posterous (or as I like to call them, dying and dead). It’s a stupid move. The only reason I post as much to twitter as I do is because I have a backup of all that data here on this blog. This is my space. It’s my corner of the Internet that I have full control over. It’s not some other company owning everything I post. That’s important. Since we all first started…

    I don’t really do much blogging anymore. 2013 was sparse. 15 posts. I use Twitter and Flickr more than anything else. I archive all that here too, via the Lifestream section of the site, so if Twitter dies, I still have a copy of all the ephemera I’ve tweeted.UPDATE: Well, turds. It appears my tweets stopped being archived in here in early June. That. Sucks. ANOTHER UPDATE: Whew! Duplicate tweets stored here. I used to be a professional blogger. Now I’m a professional who only occasionally blogs. Odd. Anyway, it’s just something I’ve thought about a few times…

    Baby Girl Sample 12 weeks 3 days Sonogram, a set on Flickr. Here’s a set of pictures and videos from our sonogram this past week on Thursday. We know she’s a girl and not at risk for various genetic abnormalities thanks to a new blood test that Kristin took before the sonogram. The videos are great, as she’s moving and kicking around. She’s currently the size of one of the small action figures that Jackson plays with. It’s crazy how much more detailed these things are just about 4 years after when we had all this done for Jackson. We have some names in the works,…

    25 Aug 2014 | 10:20 am
    The very characteristics that make social media incredibly appealing to consumers are the same ones that make it ripe for scammers seeking to exploit the value and power of established brands. It's not unusual for fans and consumers to be exposed to something new every day, whether a promotion, contest, fan page or enticing content. And, without much history to signal what is genuine and what is not, consumers find themselves at risk of being hoodwinked by brand impersonators, malicious account spoofers and counterfeiters.This white paper offers best practices for protecting your brand--and…

  • Sony RX10 Gets Firmware Update and Price Cut

    Chance Kinney
    2 Sep 2014 | 9:44 am
    Last year, we reviewed the Sony RX10 camera and found that the fixed-lens, pint-sized camera fell a little short for those looking for a high-end camera. As of this week, Sony is trying to make it up to those aficionados with two pieces of good news—a firmware update and a price cut. The firmware update makes it possible to record video in XAVC-S format, which allows for 1080p recording at 50 Mbps as long as you have an SD card with a fast enough write speed. The format includes more detail in the images recorded, while cutting down on noise. It’s still a compressed format,…

The launch jitters are out of the way, and the early mistakes have been made. The Xbox One has gotten over Ryse: Son of Rome, while the PS4 and the Wii U deftly avoided early flops by not having very many games to begin with.

If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership.

Before customers get their first chance to see or touch a new Apple product, the company has carefully orchestrated almost every one of its public appearances: controlled leaks and advance briefings for favored writers, an invite-only media debut, and a special early review process for a group of pre-screened, known-positive writers. Nothing is left to chance, and in the rare case where Apple doesn't…
  • A failed experiment: how LG screwed up its webOS acquisition

    Things were looking up in early 2013 for the team behind webOS, a pioneering but star-crossed mobile operating system. After surviving the implosion of Palm and a rocky acquisition by HP, LG stepped in to buy the team. The consumer electronics giant seemed like a white knight with a plan: To make webOS the core of LG's next-generation smart TV platform, and use the brains behind webOS to create a much-needed engine of innovation at LG. To create a unit that was meant to help the company to beat competitors like Samsung with Silicon Valley smarts. A disruptive force. Eighteen months later, the…

    Rex Hammock
    24 Aug 2014 | 7:28 pm
    Forgive me, but you’ll find at the bottom of this post yet another Ice Bucket Challenge video. I was on vacation and somewhat off the grid a couple of weeks ago when the ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Ice Bucket Challenge meme hit, so I wasn’t quite sure what the shout-out from Hammock president John Lavey was all about when it hit my in-box. By the time I could get around to responding to his challenge, the meme had grown to epic status. How epic? Today (August 24, 2014), the ice bucket full of contributions being poured onto the ALS Association has crossed the $70 million…

    I continue to be amazed by the story-telling power of maps. This New York Times interactive map of recent fighter jet and drone strikes in northern Iraq makes me wonder how the use of visualized data used by news media in the form of maps would have changed the way people understood, in real-time, previous wars and conflicts. Yes, social media is changing the face of journalism, but so is data-driven journalism and visualized data of this quality. (Not to be confused with the lack of quality found in the vast majority marketing-oriented infographics.) A couple of weeks ago, for the Hammock…

The music is still there. The memories are still there. But if Michael Jackson can die, does that mean a part of us dies with him? I think that’s what we mourn.

    Duplicate files may seem harmless to many computer users. If only users knew that these files causes more trouble than good.

For instance, Disqus lets me moderate discussions or reply to comments via email itself and commenters can use their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts to sign-in for commenting on web pages.

    Upcoming Moto X+1 from Motorola has been enjoying quite a lot of attention for some time. Appearing in numerous leaks, we now have a very good understanding about how the device will be looking and what specifications it will boast. The latest leak is coming from TKTechNews which shows us the back of the device. Now the back does look quite similar to the ones we have seen in previous leaks, but… there is one small change. It seems that this particular Moto X+1 is touting a leather back. This could very well be a result of customisation done through Moto Maker. There are chances that…

    Almost everyone who is somewhat interested in technology knows about OnePlus and how they stormed the internet with their first ever smart phone and dubbed it as the ‘flagship killer’ of 2014. The catchphrase was somewhat true as the OnePlus One managed to best the likes of Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Xperia Z2 and HTC One M8. And the best part? The phone was available at the staggering price of $350 (For the 64 gigs version) However, there was a slight issue. To buy a OnePlus One you would have needed an invite, and invites weren’t easy to get. Well, the good news is that the…

    This post originally appeared on VR World. For more Asia Pacific stories visit VR World and ‘Like’ VR World on Facebook. A single gigabyte of data may look small, but it is actually the average amount of data consumed by most smartphone users in the United States. This is assuming of course that these users don’t use their phones to download lots of HD media. In Japan, the trend is quite similar. However, this new survey by MMD tells us something a lot more, which looks almost like a fierce competition between average data consumption rates. The survey data shows that at…

    I think we’ve all seen those giant fire towers while passing down a forest-side road. The towers stretch above the ceiling of trees like an airborne sanctuary, and there Forest Rangers sit in their endless watch. We wonder who they are, how they cope with that seclusion, and what it’s like to be broken away from society to stay sentinel against a raw force of nature. What sacrifices do those brave men and women make for their vigil? What have they experienced in their toilsome journeys? With Firewatch, Campo Santo is telling that story. And they’re even marrying it with…

    In the world of tech journalism and hardware reviews, AnandTech is considered as a leading source of breaking news and balanced reviews. Founded in 1997 by Anand Lal Shimpi, the site started out with a focus on motherboards, but then evolved along with the times. AnandTech has since branched out into covering and reviewing CPUs, video cards, notebook computers, mobile devices and, in the words of founder Shimpi himself, “anything that mattered.” Yesterday, Shimpi announced that he was leaving AnandTech, having served the site as publisher and editor for almost 18 years.

    With Bitcoin gaining popularity and then some semblance of stability in its real-world value, will the cryptocurrency remain in the lead amongst other digital tender? Virtual currencies are not exactly new. While purely digital currencies like Bitcoin are often the subject of news today, technology startups have explored virtual currencies as early as the 1990s. Take for example, which launched a currency called “Beenz” meant for earning loyalty points and paying online. After raising $100 million in VC funding, the startup failed to gain traction and eventually folded…

    Terry White
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    I will be the first to admit that when I saw that Adobe Photoshop CC had 3D printing capability I thought “oh cool”, but I never thought that I would actually use it. I couldn’t think of a single thing that I wanted to have printed in 3D. It’s great for architects, designers, modelers, and anyone else that wants to turn their concepts into real objects. Again, COOL! However, I just couldn’t think of anything that I wanted to have printed from my own designs. Then I had to give a presentation on it. Anyone that knows me knows that I don’t like to speak on a…

    I have clients who diligently do the work — grow their lists, communicate value to them, collect testimonials, communicate them, ask for referrals, etc. — and enjoy revenue growth of 20% or more in their first year with me. Almost always, this is millions of dollars in new sales. I have other clients who listen to my advice, but do not apply it. They don’t change their behavior much, and do not enjoy the results they deserve. Further, their market does not get to benefit from their enormous value. You already know what to do. The question is, are you doing it? The distance…

    We are not a road-trip family — we fly — but last week we drove from Chicago to Niagara Falls and Toronto. Which meant more than 20 hours in the car round-trip and between destinations. With two 5-year-olds. And so, they asked “why?” approximately 200,000 times. And we answered. Kids don’t hesitate to clarify, dig deeper, and understand precisely. Adults do. We don’t ask “why” for reasons that boil down to self-limiting beliefs: we don’t want to impose, offend, or project that we do not understand. These are confidence and self-esteem…

    When you tell people you’re great, you’re selling. People expect that of you, and take it with a grain (or several grains) of salt. Also, although marketing is no place for modesty, personal moderation, discomfort with boldness, “preferring to let our work” do the talking hold us back from blowing our own horn. All of which is why we must obtain and communicate the thoughts and feelings of our happy customers. With testimonials and case studies, we must let our customers tell their peers about what they love best about us. There is nothing we can say that is more…

Fitton told members of the St. Pancras Coroner’s Court during an inquest that he and his girlfriend had hailed a minicab that night after dinner and were just discussing the stormy weather with the driver, 49-year old Julie Sillitoe, when a building partially collapsed and fell right on top of the car, crushing Fillton and killing Sillitoe. “Quite instantly, I felt I had…

    With unrest increasing throughout many parts of the world and in the U.S., President Obama’s national approval ratings continue to hover in the low 40s. In addition, new polling data is showing that the president may be losing support in Democrat strongholds as well. A new poll released today by the Field Research corporation shows that Obama’s approval rating has reached a new low in California. Just under 45 percent of those polled said that they approve of the way the president is handling his job, while over 43 percent disapprove. The poll also shows that a majority of…
  • Were Your Google Authorship Efforts All For Nothing?

    Google introduced authorship support over three years ago, leading webmasters and anyone concerned with SEO to jump through a new set of hoops to make sure their faces were visible in Google search results, and hopefully even get better rankings and overall visibility in the long run. Now, Google has decided to pull the plug on the whole thing. Do you feel that authorship was a waste of time? Are you glad to see it go? Is Google making the wrong move? Share your thoughts in the comments. To be fair, Google called its authorship efforts experimental in the first place, but for quite a while,…

Jennifer Aniston, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her new film, Life of Crime, was hesitant when Kimmel told her that he was actually a huge fan of Friends. “I loved the show so much I actually wrote some fan fiction,” he said. “I wrote myself into it as Ross.

    2 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    While Android KitKat 4.4 may be the latest version of Android, it is by no means the perfect version of Android that we have been asking for. Despite a lot of positives, KitKat still has a bunch of issues that are fairly well documented, one of the most common ones has been the issue where Wifi connectivity of the device automatically drops off without any reason. This is a common occurrence not just in the devices that run Android in vanilla state but also devices like HTC M8 or the Galaxy S5 which run custom Android skins. However, thanks to XDA Forum, it is not all that difficult to fix…

    It habecome bit of trend in the tech space to take cheap shots at one another, and more often than not Apple has been at the receiving end. You can see this as an evidence of how other OEMs are maybe wary of the growing dominance of Apple and continuous trend setting, but more than anything else, it has made for some really hilarious commercials. Samsung has been the main culprit who has taken every opportunity to push Apple and ridicule it, be it making fun of the rather poor battery backup on the iPhones or smaller displays on them when compared to the Samsung Galaxy devices.

So which one exactly it is? A common notion so far has been that those who are flying commercial aircraft or jets own a flying certificate, while flying licence is reserved for those, who are on space duties.

  • Lantronix Rallies Around Digital Classroom with Launch of Print and Learn (PAL) Program

    Mark Tullio
    29 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

    “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” —Isaac Newton There are dozens of great quotes attributed to Newton, but the aforementioned quote is definitely one of my favorites.   As one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution, Newton’s contributions have impacted all areas of our lives, especially technology. One of the critical success factors for any tech company is “strategic partnerships.” Nowhere is this more critical, and more relevant, than during a market transition – and that’s…

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:38 am
    Today more than ever, the need to keep IT equipment operational 24/7 is critical to the health of a company. Enterprises with distributed branch or satellite offices – such as those in retail, finance, insurance, healthcare, and food services industries – are presented with special challenges, as they need a centralized solution that can manage each location remotely. Our Secure Lantronix Branch (SLB) Office Manager is designed to do just that.

    2 Jul 2014 | 10:58 am
    (thanks to by Brian Chee, Senior Contributing Editor, InfoWorld Test Center) Imagine the world’s deepest observatory at 3 miles below the sea surface. Now think about what a challenge it would be to monitor equipment for such a remote location. This was the problem encountered by Aloha Cable Observatory (ACO), as they sought to replace an old power distribution unit (PDU) with a solution that would supply remote power management, control and configuration for critical seawater systems. Enter SLB! The Secure Lantronix Branch (SLB) Office Manager from Lantronix was selected to securely manage…

  • NASA’s Opportunity set for another record

    Nidhi Mathew
    1 Sep 2014 | 11:35 pm
    Lunokhod 2 rover sent to our moon by the then USSR, held the record for off-Earth rovering distance on an alien surface; it landed on the surface of the moon on 15th January, 1973 and traveled 24.2 miles. In the recent past, on 21st July, 2011, NASA’s rover “Opportunity” broke that record by exceeding 25 miles of traveling on the surface of Mars. Opportunity landed on Mars in 2004. It has so far traveled farther than any other vehicle on the surface of another world other than the Earth. In its slow paced continuous movement, it has collected invaluable information concerning the…
  • One more year before Pluto is breached

    Nidhi Mathew
    1 Sep 2014 | 10:57 pm
    We don’t know much about Pluto other than its name and that it is a dwarf planet far away from the Earth; even NASA’s signature telescope, “Hubble Space Telescope” allows us to merely see its spherical shape and reddish color. It orbits the sun from an approximate distance of 3.65 billion miles and takes 248 years to orbit the sun once. Pluto is shrouded in mystery, but the good news is that we have to wait only one more year before Pluto is breached; NASA’s spacecraft “New Horizons” is scheduled to make a close flyby of the distant planet on July 14, 2015. People in the…

    31 Aug 2014 | 8:38 pm
    Microsoft is taking a new initiative that will enable the company to mold a prosperous future for itself. Unfortunately, the company’s Messenger platform is not going to be a part of the utopic vision the company’s CEO Satya Nadella has for the tech giant. The objectives that Nadella has laid out are extremely ambitious; there are several sacrifices that will have to be made for the company to reach the platform that has been laid out in the timeline. Not long ago, nearly 18,000 employees were laid off as part of the changes that the company plans to implement in the coming months.
  • NVIDIA slashes its Titan-Z GPU’s price by 37%

    Adeel Inam
    31 Aug 2014 | 8:38 pm
    While the Titan-Z graphic card released by NVIDIA is placed in an echelon of performance that only one GPU is currently able to match, its exorbitant price  of $3,000 and buggy drivers won’t make the richest computer gamers enticed to purchase it. This is probably because it’s closest rival; AMD’s R9 295 x 2 performs equally against its adversary and costs literally half the price of the Titan Z ($1,499). Perhaps NVIDIA has got its act together from being inebriated, because the price slashing of the company’s current flagship GPU has begun and the best part is that the price slash…

Here’s a real example of an existing website that’s a few years old and does not have a mobile or responsive site: Enough said? This website is on track to have more mobile users than desktop users very soon, so it makes sense that they should have a mobile website.

    A friend showed me recently; it is a quick way to get some feedback from real users. You can take a random test and receive points which can be used to collect free results on your own tests or, get a paid plan and a set number or results per month. The tests can be custom, include navigation flow, a quick visual glance test or an actual navigation flow test. After seeing results, it is clear that some users have fast fingers or are just clicking randomly to get points.

    Samsung is looking for an edge for its first Tizen-powered smartwatch, Gear S. They have partnered with Nike to introduce a new exclusive Nike+ Running and Fitness app for the smartwatch. It is intended to turn the Gear S into a fitness tracker similar to what the FuelBand was. Because the Gear S has 3G capability, there is no need to use a smartphone to upload live progress statistics to Nike+ servers. It is also capable of collecting different information about your speed, distance, and route thanks to the GPS module. You can also check pace, direction, and heart rate right from the Gear S.

  • Easily Grant Root Permissions in MIUI v6 Developer ROM with SuperSU

    1 Sep 2014 | 2:37 am
    Earlier, we shared ‘How to root Xiaomi Mi 3 Indian version’ easily by installing the necessary files through Updater, both for rooting and unrooting. Perhaps, if you’ve updated Mi 3 or Mi 4 to MIUI v6 Developer ROM (based on Android 4.4.4) then you might be looking to root your MIUI 6 device. Well, that’s not required as MIUI developer ROMs are rooted by default! But the root permissions aren’t provided to apps by default. Though, one can grant root access to an app through the Permissions app but that’s pretty annoying in MIUI 6 as there are 5 pop-ups, each with a timer of 5…

  • Xiaomi Redmi 1S vs Moto E vs Zenfone 4 vs Moto G [Specifications Comparison]

    Today, Xiaomi announced the availability and new pricing for its entry-level smartphone ‘Redmi 1S’ which is now priced at Rs. 5,999. The Redmi 1S will go on sale exclusively at Flipkart on 2nd September and registration for the same has already started. Just like Mi 3, the Redmi 1S features a nice design, aggressive price and a great hardware for its price. Redmi 1S at Rs. 5,999 is apparently a much better buy over other phones in the similar price segment such as the Moto E, ASUS Zenfone 4 (A400CG/ A450CG), Micromax Unite 2 A106, and even Moto G.

      Ten years. That’s how far away in the past the Google IPO lies. Ten years of explosive growth for the digital world, ten gruesome years for legacy media. Here is the lost decade, revisited in charts and numbers.  The asymmetry is staggering. By every measure, the digital sphere grew explosively thanks to a combination of known factors: a massive influx of capital; the radical culture shift fostered by a “blank slate” approach; obsessive agility in search of new preys; flattened hierarchies; shrugged-off acceptance of failure; refocusing on the customer;  a keen sense of…

      Strategic Alliances and other grandly named partnerships never seem to live up to their florid marriage announcements. Apple and IBM are it – again – but this time, Apple is the larger, more prosperous company, and IBM is trying the bad old recipe of regaining growth by cutting down. Let me slip into something more comfortable: Devil’s Advocate robes. Thus togged out, I will explain why this Apple + IBM rapprochement won’t work – or, worse, it will. First, the clash of cultures. Apple is a focused company, its financial statements tell the story: Its money is made…

      The modern smartphone is 7 years old and yet, when it comes to designing mobile applications, we are still barely scratching the surface. Today we’ll see how harnessing technology already embedded in a phone can unleash great potential.  A mobile news app has simple goals: Capture and retain reader attention, and repeat the process, several times a day. Pretty straightforward. But not that simple in the real world. For a news provider, the smartphone screen is the the most challenging environment ever seen.

  • Stop Chrome From Hijacking Your Media Keys: Here’s How

    Chris Hoffman
    2 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    Chrome has support for system-wide keyboard shortcuts. If you install an app that uses media keys — like Google Play Music for Chrome — it will hijack those media keys. Even if you have the Chrome app closed, Chrome will hold onto those keys and not let them go as long as it’s running. You’ll find yourself unable to hit Play/Pause, Forward, and Back to control music in iTunes, Spotify, and other desktop media applications. But this can be fixed! This doesn’t just apply to media keys — Chrome can capture other system-wide keyboard shortcuts, too. Control…

    I have been using Dropbox since 2010 and have nearly 290 GB of storage space in my account. However, I decided to give OneDrive another shot since it comes integrated deeply with my new Windows 8.1 device out-of-the-box. Unlike Dropbox which currently lacks document editing capabilities, OneDrive brings the added benefits of Microsoft Office online integration. This seemed like a good reason to switch, but I quickly noticed a few critical drawbacks after spending a week using OneDrive exclusively for all my documents.

  • Should your start-up host a launch party?

    Martin Shen
    29 Mar 2013 | 9:29 am
    Start-ups have come into vogue. Today’s Silicon Valley has brogrammers, swag galore, and even its own reality TV show. Geeks are the new party rockers and we’re starting to see the resurrection of crazy start-up launch parties. Lean mean start-up machines will tell you that launch parties are poor customer acquisition strategies. And 99% of the time, these bootstrappers are correct.

    I decided to purchase a Microsoft Surface Pro when it made a debut last month. It seemed like the perfect device which could function both as a laptop and a tablet. Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100. The Intel i5 processor, a full HD display, and a USB 3.0 port makes the package even more attractive. A comparable 11-inch Macbook Air with a 128 GB SSD still…

Several observational studies have investigated the association between vitamin D status and schizophrenia.

  • AP – NORC Survey Observes How Americans Evaluate Physician Quality

    Meghann Kiernan
    25 Aug 2014 | 1:54 am
    The Affordable Care Act focuses on expanding health insurance coverage to millions of Americans. Americans while getting enrolled in specific health benefit plans and choosing physicians, must consider whether the physician will be able to provide high-quality care. Often, when it comes to defining a quality healthcare provider there is considerable difference between how experts and consumers actually define it. Being licensed doesn’t necessarily mean that a doctor is capable and up-to-date on all best practices. A new poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public…

    The main objective behind the federal government’s initiative to provide incentives to push hospitals and physicians to use electronic health records (EHR) was to improve efficiency and patient safety thereby reducing total healthcare costs. Inappropriate use of the EHR system has been a strong concern since 2012 with the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services alerting hospitals about the wrong use of this system. Hospitals that used this system were billing Medicare for a significantly more amount than hospitals using paper records. They were charging higher for a large…

  • Happy 9th Birthday Joomla

    16 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients". Just two weeks later, on 1st September, our new baby had a name and the world was introduced…
  • J and Beyond - Chicken Soup for the Soul

    12 Jun 2014 | 1:51 pm
    I arrived at J & Beyond not in the best of moods. I'd been off work sick for the previous month and to be honest I was tired, run down and a little depressed. There are just times when things become a constant battle of frustration and nothing seems worth the effort and that's exactly where I was. After months of preparation for JAB14 I was no longer interested and was determined that this would be my last JAB and probably my last Joomla event. Mood 0/10 I had convinced my JAB teammates to introduce two new features for 2014 and I was no longer certain that the Make it Happen or…
  • Create your own Joomla manual

    28 May 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Documentation in any Open Source project is seen as the Holy Grail. It's great to have but somehow never quite fulfils the needs of the users. Joomla has an excellent documentation resource but I think it is fair to categorise these docs mainly as "reference" material and not "user guides". There are some excellent books and some truly awful books but without exception they are generic titles targeted as the site builder or site programmer. If you build sites for people or you have had a site built for you, you don't need or want a thousand page manual, you want a simple twenty page guide…
  • Easily create web site images

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:42 am
    Some people are able to open up a graphic editor and produce stunning original artwork for their web sites. I'm not one of those people. For me it's usually a case of searching the net in the hope of finding the perfect graphic that exactly matches my needs. Usually I fail in that search and end up with the closest thing I can find. Yesterday I found a new web site that does all the hard work for you. With Canva you can quickly and easily take any of their stock elements and completely customise them to your exact needs. It's very quick and incredibly easy to use. There are loads of…
  • Akeeba Backup for WordPress

    31 Mar 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Yesterday was world backup day. Did you remember to take your backups? Of course you're taking them daily aren't you and not just once a year!! Every Joomla user knows that they can use the awesome Akeeba Backup to take a backup of their site quickly and easily and even automate the process so that the backup is taken daily, with the backup archives stored in a secure off-site location. When you went to backup your WordPress, phpBB, PrestaShop or other php/sql web site were you jealous? Did you sit there wondering why it was so much harder to backup your WordPress web site?

  • How valuable is search engine optimisation for businesses?

    19 Aug 2014 | 7:37 am
    All businesses need to appear near, or at the top, of search engine results lists. This is the first place that consumers turn when looking for any kind of product or service, and they will rarely click past the first few results. You can appear at the top of these lists with the help of internet marketing agencies. The internet has completely transformed the way in which consumers shop for products and services. They no longer walk to the high street or look in the book for local services, they now go online. You can find all kinds of products and services online, and this method brings…

    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't.

    It goes without saying that there has been an over-arching health and wellness trend in the food & beverage space for the past several decades, ever since we learned (or at least we thought we learned) that our beloved bacon and butter may be contributing to our waistlines and our cholesterol levels. Of course, over the years as health care professionals, manufacturers & consumers have become more educated, the factors that define “healthy” foods have evolved. These days the trend seems to have shifted from low fat & low cholesterol to benefits including organic, high protein…

Just a month has passed since I wrote the following about my experiences at the Edison Awards, in a blog post uncreatively titled The Innovator’s Dilemma:  “There was a great preponderance of what I call “brilliant individual syndrome,” wherein people stood up, said how smart they were, how they had vision to make things happen…and ignored the six failed innovation attempts that came prior to this success, when they managed to light piles of their own (and others’) money on fire and watch it go up in smoke.”  What followed was a spirited defense (at least…

    Social media seems to be impacting nearly every aspect of marketing. It allows brands to interact with consumers in a digital space. Feedback and customer service happen in real time. Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps. In both instances, consumers have the ability to click a “buy” button within an ad (which can be prompted to appear based on a…

    The average person has over 100 apps on their smartphone these days, but people far from use all of them. In fact, most people use only 20-30 apps on a regular basis. When I was at Nielsen I dug into this kind of data on a regular basis, and have since seen a lot of data form other sources that pretty much show the same thing. One thing that is apparent is the difference between ages when it comes to app consumption and time spent using the device, with millennials leading in the later category. What I’ve also seen is a further segmentation of people and how they use their smartphone and…

With Jony Ivy now leading both hardware and software design efforts for iPhone, iPad, and iPod, Apple is closer to making this happen. iOS’ overall look and feel hasn’t radically changed much since 2007, though it was both disruptive and immensely appealing when it debuted. Apple has since been in a leadership position in both smartphones and tablets. The UI and UX of native iOS…

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first changed from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

    Kids used to have a fairly limited choice when buying their own My Little Pony. No more. Imagine getting to decide exactly what color your pony's hair is. Or what the saddle looks like. Now kids can customize their own unique toy, thanks to the innovations of 3D printing. The toy industry is among the biggest beneficiaries of the technology. Toys already tend to be small and made out of plastic, making it easy to 3D print them. McKinsey estimates the total economic impact of 3D printing technology will be $230-$550 billion per year by 2025, $100-$300 billion of which will…

    Big Data is something of a nebulous concept, and like many ideas without a clear definition, it’s been seized on by various writers and pundits as the next big thing. It’s easy to write endlessly about something when you aren’t forced to constrain yourself to practicalities. The eCommerce industry is nothing if not pragmatic, ever […]
  • WordPress Misconceptions: Do You Need A Custom WordPress Design?

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:20 am
    I was recently talking to a friend who wants to create a site for his small business. He’s a landscaper, and needs a simple site — perhaps a few pages to describe his services, a contact form, and a blog. As someone who is fairly knowledgeable about WordPress web hosting, it’s difficult for me to […]

    In a recent blog post, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) revealed a scam in which registrants of top-level domains like .com and .net are approached by fraudsters and told that they need to buy a certificate to “protect their domain”. Although the certificates are well designed and incorporate official ICANN graphics, the […]

    Hi, First, congratulations to you for 1up in your career. You were a senior reviewer in Tech2 for (I am assuming) a very long time. Being a corporate marketing and PR even for a brand like Asus is a huge responsibility. I hope you do it to he best of your abilities. I as a reviewer would like to remind you of few errors that you’ve made in your past reviewers, which may have inadvertently made to lose their hard earned money and maybe even make lose interest in PC overall.

  • Gigabyte Z97X-SOC Motherboard Review

    The Sorcerer
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:14 am
    Gigabyte shipped its Z97X-SOC motherboard for testing, which was also used to test Intel Devil’s Canyon 4790K processor. The board uses orange and black colour combo and its aimed to attract gamers/ enthusiasts. In my opinion, having a motherboard designed and marketed specifically for extreme overclocking to a crowd where they’ll either use an air or liquid cooling solution (either closed looped, pre-built or custom) will make them look somewhere else, probably similar version of the board minus the switches. This is something that not just applies towards Gigabyte. Of most of…
  • CM Storm Rapid-i (SGK-4040-GKCM1) Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review

    The Sorcerer
    30 Aug 2014 | 3:23 pm
    CM Storm Rapid-i mechanical gaming keyboard is something that I wish their CM Storm Quickfire TK was- a small keyboard with directional keys. The main cons I highlighted was that CM should have ditched the Numpad and provide dedicated buttons for navigation and special keys. The end result is what you see here! A lot of people do not use Numpad, and if you buy a full-sized mechanical keyboard, you end up paying a premium for a keyboard where you’ll use it far lesser than you would do for multimedia and even macro keys. Keyboard designs like this help to keep the cost down while providing…

    The Sorcerer
    27 Aug 2014 | 2:43 pm
    Intel talked a lot about the Haswell Refresh processors codenamed Devil’s Canyon, and they were very excited about it . The newer Haswell (codename: Devil’s Canyon) came with certain improvements in comparison to earlier processors. Difference was mostly on the physical side of the processor. Intel used a ‘next generation thermal interface material’ in the hopes that it would please enthusiasts and overclockers who found that older model Haswell processors used a thermal paste under the integrated heatsink, though many would have preferred to see Intel using solder. The…

    Hilary Jansen
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:11 pm
    These are invaluable insights from an editor that I plan to use as I format my PR and content marketing projects. It’s so easy to slip into auto-pilot and push out the company name/ brand/ products rather than think about what will resonate with audiences and make them engage. Some of these tips are very specific (e.g. try to keep all paragraphs under 30 words and to three lines) and I plan to put this tip into practice and test the results. A little restriction on my writing never hurt! Which tips are new to you? This is an edited version of Timeless Storytelling Tips from Former PR…

    I read an interesting article in Fast Company that made the bold statement: every brand should be on Instagram. My first reaction: yeah….right. ::Cue face-palm:: As a PR professional I’ve always counseled my clients that it’s not worth joining every social channel just to say you’re on there. Not only can it be a time suck, but if your audience isn’t there – why bother?

  • How to Automatically Remove Unwanted Pre-Installed Software from Your Computer

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:42 pm
    So you just bought a new computer and can’t wait to start using it right? So you fire up that bad boy eagerly awaiting the cool new features and instantaneous loading of programs with a single click of the mouse, but what do you get? Annoyingly and shockingly, your new computer boots up and greets you with popup ads, lots of shortcuts to useless programs and useless services with enough icons on your desktop to fill up half the screen on your new widescreen display! It’s 2014 and the only computer I have bought that doesn’t have any bloatware on it is the Google Chromebook.

    If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably deleted something important on your computer that you need to recover ASAP! Hopefully, the files or folders that are now gone were deleted only a short while ago because the more data that gets written to the disk, the more chance that the section of the hard drive that contained the data will be overwritten with new data, thereby making your recovery chances a lot lower. Before we get into the different ways to recover deleted files, first make sure you check a couple of things: 1. Always check the recycle bin to make sure your…

    25 Aug 2014 | 6:54 pm
    Trying to figure out where all of your hard drive space has disappeared to is often quite a challenge in Windows with all of the hidden folders and temp directories! As an IT Professional, one tool that I use almost every other day is TreeSize, a small utility that tells you exactly where all of your hard drive space is currently allocated. Using TreeSize Free edition, you can immediately see which folders and sub-folders are taking up the most hard disk space. Once you have that info, it’s a piece of cake to quickly free up hard drive space taken up by temp files or other useless data.

An assignment required the class to sandwich two pieces of plastic together, but where some students simply saw air, Pabari envisioned the makings of a new kind of educational toy. Fast-forward some 10 months and he finds himself shortlisted for a Young Innovator of the Year award and pitching his product to potential investors.

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    Almost every Internet user makes hundreds of DNS (Domain Name System) calls every day, and you probably are not aware that your DNS queries are sent in plain text. What this means is that people managing your DNS server (mostly provided by your ISP) can see where you are heading to on the Internet.Even if you are using VPN services to secure your Internet connection, most VPN services won’t encrypt your DNS traffic. Moreover, these plain text DNS queries are prone to attacks like man-in-the-middle-attacks, DNS hijacking, etc. If you are really concerned, you can now encrypt DNS traffic…

    If you’ve been following technology since the mid-90s, you’d probably vaguely remember IBM’s “thinking” computers and how they seemed to be the prelude into what could possibly become a revolution in information gathering and logic processing. After “Deep Blue” beat Gary Kasparov at chess in 1996 and “Watson” aced a game of Jeopardy in 2011, it became clear that computers were destined for something greater than following simple instructions. We are coming closer to creating digital brains, and are possibly going to fare better as a result…

  • NETGEAR announces the Nighthawk X4 AC2350 Smart WiFi Router

    Brian Fagioli
    2 Sep 2014 | 9:40 am
    In my home, I use the Apple Airport Extreme router for all of my Wi-Fi needs. It's a great performing router, but in typical Apple fashion, it is limited and proprietary. While most modern routers have four wired connections, Apple's offering has two. While most routers offer a web-based settings configuration, Apple forces the user to use special software that is only available for Windows, OS X or iOS. As someone who uses Linux often, it is frustrating that I cannot configure the router from any distro, including my favorite, Fedora. Quite frankly, I'd rather not have Apple software on my…

    A week ago I wrote about my feelings of ennui towards the iPhone 6, asserting that there was just nothing to get excited about. Some people agreed, but many didn't -- it was to be expected really. What was particularly interesting was not just the discussion that started here in the comments on BetaNews but also that the article spread further afield. It was picked up by Macworld whose resident columnist The Macalope, er, disagreed with what I had to say. You'll notice that I've provided a link to the Macworld article which, despite quoting 46 percent of my post, The Macalope failed to do…

  • Find out more about your favorite artists with Song Buddy

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    Some music players are smart. Not only will they play your tracks, but they'll try to tell you more about them, perhaps downloading and displaying the lyrics. Windows Media Player and iTunes aren't quite so clever, but that's where Song Buddy comes in. This free app for Windows, iPhone, iPad and Mac detects the "now playing" artist and displays other releases, concerts, images, a biography, links and more. We played a few songs in Windows Media Player, then clicked Song Buddy’s system tray icon. A small window popped up each time, correctly identifying the current artist and track, and…

As marketing ideas go, transitioning the iPhone from a “But, it’s one more!” lifecycle trajectory to a proven brand value position seems a slam is running a bit of fluff that contains 1.1 things. First, the 0.1 part is a video of a purported 5.5-inch iPhone 6L body (below). The thing worth actually thinking about is the notion that Apple will name its phablet sized 5.5-inch smartphone not the iPhone 6L…

During my first few months I watched our Amazon Web Services bill creep from $100K per month to over $350K.

The result: a new mandate to optimize the cost, usage, performance, availability and security of our cloud infrastructure. What followed in the next year was a journey that took my…

    One or two tweaks and Lyft Line will…reinvent the city bus. The last tweet exchange below is the best, imo. No idea what that’s all about. @rstephens @shaunemiller @lyft If you take this to its logical conclusion you get…a city bus. — Michael Arrington (@arrington) August 29, 2014 @rstephens @lyft they should set up places where people gather to get on a Lyft Line, and people can get off at any of these “stops”. — Michael Arrington (@arrington) August 29, 2014 @rstephens @shaunemiller @lyft so it’s like a small, more expensive bus — Michael Arrington…
  • Explicit GoTenna Use Case: Buying Drugs

    Michael Arrington
    18 Jul 2014 | 9:27 am
    I read about GoTenna yesterday – a neat little device that connects to your phone via bluetooth that allows you to send messages to other people using GoTenna even if cell service is out. It basically turns your phone into a handheld UHF radio with encryption (which you can’t do as a normal citizen with a CB). Watch the video here on the GoTenna site. I noticed the guy smoking (and selling) marijuana yesterday and chuckled. Someone at Hacker News noticed the same thing and commented on it. Another says “I think they are quite deliberately pointing out that dealers can…
  • They Might Be Tearing Down The Creamery To Build Condos

    Michael Arrington
    17 Jul 2014 | 4:51 pm
    If you’re involved in the startup world in San Francisco you’ve likely been to the Creamery on Townsend and 4th street. It’s iconic, even if only recently so. In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business. Today there are probably at least a handful of startup meetings going on there at any given…

    My defamation action against Jenn Allen, the woman who falsely accused me of rape last year after I ended our relationship, is over. She retracted her statements and apologized, which is the very relief I sought before filing this action, and I accordingly dismissed the lawsuit. The settlement agreement is here. Unfortunately, when you have been accused of rape — even provably falsely as I have been — there’s no way to “win”. For the rest of my life, when someone searches my name on the internet, the word “rape” will appear somewhere among the…
  • Ex-NSA Guys’ Startup To Protect You From NSA

    Michael Arrington
    18 Jun 2014 | 12:26 pm
    Virtu, a Washington D.C. startup, raises $6 million in new capital. The company is building an encryption product that will work with email platforms, including Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook. Which is great except that the founders are ex-NSA guys who used to be paid to do things like collect emails and phone call information from hundreds of millions of terrorist suspects Americans. The kind of stuff that this new product is designed foil. It’s like hiring Darth Vader to build planetary defense systems to thwart the Death Star. Except the analogy doesn’t quite work.

    Apple has fought the idea of adding widget support to its iOS platform for years, in theory because the company decided battery life was more important than zero-tap access to information. Some agree with that stance while others would rather have the option of using widgets on their iPhones and iPads, but now Apple has finally come up with a compromise. In iOS 8, Apple’s next-generation mobile platform that will be released to the public later this month, developers can create widgets f

  • How does the Huawei Ascend P7 compare?

    Tim Dickinson
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:06 am
    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…

  • EE’s move to charge extra to skip the queue with “priority support” is a farce

    Tim Dickinson
    14 Aug 2014 | 10:09 am
    Mobile phone network EE has made a controversial move by offering customers the ability to “skip the queue” for support, angering many customers. Premium support is not a new idea, but for a company where forums are filled with complaints of people struggling with slow speeds or getting any connection at all, it looks very much like giving two fingers to their customers. People put up with poor support (and paying for it) from companies such as Ryan Air because they are offering budget basement prices – you get what you pay for. However, EE is not marketing itself as the…
